Iranian Reaction - What do Iranians in Sacramento think about what's going on in Iran - the disputed election, the huge protests and now the government crackdown? To try and find out, Capital Public Radio's Ben Adler recently went to a restaurant popular with Iranians in Sacramento. Today on Insight, Adler joins us to tell us what he heard.
Prison Psychologist - "How to Create and Maintain an Alien" is the provocative title of a new book about the psychology and treatment of criminals. The author is a retired psychologist who worked for 40 years in California's prison system. Auburn-resident Arthur Mattocks tells you about his work and his book.
Christian AND Liberal - When thinking about the politics of evangelical Christianity, chances are conservative politics come to mind. But a new book makes the case that liberal-minded people can feel at home in the evangelical movement. The author is musician Brent Bourgeois, best known for his '80s band Bourgeois Tagg, and his later, separate career in the Christian music business. Bourgeois' book is called "Left Behind: Jesus in the Age of the American Empire."
Poster Artist - Sacramento's best known rock music poster - Paul Imagine - is featured in a new documentary about America's rock poster scene. The film is called "American Artifact" and it's about the artists who make those sometimes colorful, inventive and sometimes scandalous posters for concerts and albums. "American Artifact" plays tonight in Sacramento, just a few days after its world premiere in San Francisco.

The First sections can be found at:
Also, the New Testament in Arabic (1867) which is the original of the modern version of in Arabic, can be found here at:
